its going to be a hot one!

This weekend had just the right amount of "stuff" in it... and just the right amount of laying around and doing nothing in the air conditioning! It was stuffy and hot, though today is going to be even hotter (93ish) and I so wish I could be at home. So lets see. Saturday was my birthday! I'm 27! :-) I love birthdays, and I'm feeling good about this age. The day itself was really nice... I slept in until 10! Trav gave me my gifts, the last two season of X-files and this figurine (which is now on my shelf at work):

I love it! It says, "The journey to motherhood begins with a miracle."

I made a big batch of Macaroni & Yeasty Cheese for lunch (mmm), and we relaxed a watched some X-files. Everyone came over in the afternoon and we hung out for a bit before heading to The Pearl for dinner. It was a lot of fun, and the food was good (as always). Everyone took off after dinner, and I called it a night around 10:30.

Sunday I slept in until 10 again! I was shocked since normally 9 is about as late as I go... but I'm waking up now sometime up to 4 times to use the bathroom, so maybe that accounts for the extra hour in the am. We had dinner plans over at Ro & Pat's house (for chicken and dumplings! yum!), but otherwise it was just a lovely day of laying around with more X-files.

I really didn't want to get up this morning, but it wasn't a bad morning. The sea bands definitely seem to be helping. My doc appointment is next week, and I'm feeling confident that I'm going to "make weight" since I've been able to eat better these past few days, and when I do have a rough morning for eating, I have the Ensure. Its funny though because Trav definitely is very encouraging, cheering me on when I'm eating well! Lol. Who would have ever thought that I would get to a place where my husband would become a food cheerleader?!

Anyway, I have to get back to work... but I did want to show one wives tale that I found online:

Mayans determined the sex of the baby by taking the mother's age at conception, and the year of conception. If both are even or both are's a girl. If one is even and one odd it's a boy.

Mother's age at conception - 26 (even)
Year of conception - 2009 (odd)

According to this wives tale, we are having a BOY.

About four or five more weeks until we can find out!
